YESTERDAY TODAY by Catherine . Barker


Email this review


A case worker for the F E R A gives a factual account of the isolated regions of Arkenses Mark mountaineers, still living an 18th century life and culture. There is material on traveling in the mountains, on the architecture, the music, the agricultural methods in the hills and in the bottom lands under a static paternalistic system. There is portrayal of the hill people, their personal appearance, marriage, children, education, family life, health, character, superstition, fatalism and a recommendation for amelioration of their hopeless struggle. A document of social import, offered with sympathetic understanding.
